    That's how it reads to me.

    So where does that leave Silva. Presumably he's not our player, but neither is he (presumably) Lisbon's player.

    He's probably our player, we just can't register him until January.

    He probably hates us before he's even kicked a ball. Half a season out before a World Cup. Add in the time it will take to get properly match fit and get used to
    playing in a new league and there's a real chance he'll miss out on what might be his last opportunity to represent his country in a World Cup. Shambles.

    It is what it is, and we move on...............keep him as fit as possible and see him in January

    So will the compulsory lack of match fitness/recovering from a minor injury come into play now or will it wait until January?

    Can we loan him to Sporting?

    Yes. In January.

    Shambles. £25m nternational playmaker sat doing nothing whilst we literally can't pass the ball to one another.
    Someone needs to fall on their sword for that one....

    Prob not the best solution.

    Did we pay using the MasterCard? Perhaps we can make a claim, get our money back and tell him to do one?

    Outcome we could have expected.

    I don't expect there will be any accountability but I imagine the club are working on some sort of statement.

    Whats the fines or penalties for playing an unregistered player ?

    Complete waste of time/money launching an appeal that isnt "cast iron" So not just Rudkins team but the legal team also need to be shown the door!!!!

    My gut feeling is that he will never play for Leicester but I can't offer any specific reason .....club statement will be interesting.

    Mine too, looking at odds for him never kicking a ball for Leicester

    Given our penchant for not playing new players until they are up to speed/match fit, he might actually be able to activate his relegation release clause before he kicks a ball

    If my reading of the report is correct it is the FA, and not LCFC, who put forward the petition/appeal to FIFA.

    Saving grace, DD is still injured and will be until October, so even if the deal hadn't been done, we would still be in this situation as we wouldn't have got in a replacement.

    Drinkwater got injured at Chelsea's training ground. He wouldn't have been there if he was still with us.

    Surely if he's not our player, then he is still Sporting's players?

    Makes that whole big farewell they did for him a bit awkward.

    Fucking shambles though. Absolute mess of a situation. We did the right thing holding out for the higher fee from Chelsea for Drinkwater - but it may have cost us.

    "...the petition made by The Football Association for permission to request the International Transfer Certificate for the player Adrien Silva and subsequently register the player for its affiliated club, Leicester City FC, is rejected."

    To me, that means he's still Sporting's player as they've not been granted a transfer certificate meaning the transfer doesn't count. So presumably means he now goes back to Sporting and we have to go back to them to sort a deal for January if we want to sign him.

    Wouldn't expect a club statement any time soon, as I suspect they'll go back to re-negotiate with Sporting and wait until then to release a statement.

    Absolute mess.
